Rise and fall of sport in the city – Osceola-Sentinel Tribune


Country Charlie met a bright-eyed saleswoman who knew seven traveling men who came to town regularly. She had a set of rabbit skin furs that made the other girls mad with jealousy. Charley got a job as a maid in a livery stable and was quickly able to swear as the local Town Sport award. Sometimes he was allowed to hold the music for the B flat clarinetist of the K. of P. orchestra when he played number 23 in the red book. He had a pair of beige shoes and a helmet and loved to go to shows at the Opéra de Touet and sit in the gallery and make cute and josh remarks to the girls when they walked in with their leggings on. He took a trip to Chicago with a load of stock and quickly made contact with the Smart Set when he collided with an active brand of drugstore whiskey and was nipped by the City Marshal.

His shop girl rocked him for a traveler to a Creston suspender house who smoked cigarettes and life was dark and blue.

The rent for his room was due and he had to put hay in the delivery barn when the billiard room was closed at night and he started to want to live on the farm. He was homesick and often at night when he lay awake on the straw he thought how brutal it would be to take old Towser and chase the rabbits by the stream. He thought about fishing at the crossroads and decided he would return to the farm.

So he started, but fishing was not for him. She had heard of her homosexual life in the city and had fled to Indianola with Brother Bill and had been spliced ​​by a justice of the peace. The old man met him at the gate with a pitchfork and told him to go west and grow up with the country and he left a sadder and slightly wiser man. – Moral, this teaches us not to despise the old farm and to rush into the cheerful but treacherous city life, but to take care of the stock and later to run for the gendarme of the justice of the peace. -1907
